Featured Works


Angel Tear
by Lino Tagliapietra

Once again the Maestro has outdone himself in this iteration of his iconic Angel Tear series. The sophisticated surface engraving, the subtle gold cane work, the slightly atypical shape, all combine to form one of the greatest pieces from this classic Lino Tagliapietra series.

Teasing Jupiter Johnson by Stephen Powell
33″ x 21″ x 21″

Teasing Jupiter Johnson
by Stephen Powell

This colorful blown glass sculpture by Stephen Powell clearly portrays his mastery over the hot glass medium. It has a playful yet compelling presence.



Vessel Display
by Dante Marioni

This composition is classic Marioni! Each miniature vessel has its own personality and charm. Displayed together these vessels create a fascinating juxtaposition of shapes. The subdued white and black palette allows the beholder to focus more closely on the objects themselves.

Sentinel by Harry Pollitt, 28″ h, 11″ dia




by Harry Pollitt

Santa Fe glass artist Harry Pollitt has come up with another great piece of cast glass sculpture in “Sentinel.” This piece has an understated drama, a quiet but engaging presence.



11-21-07 Bubble Study
by David Schwarz

This piece by David Schwarz has a feeling of magical realism. The graphics on the surface of the piece appear almost to be dancing around on the interior as the viewer walks around the sculpture.
